Charles Sidney McCarthy (born August 6, 1980) is a retired American mixed martial artist who was featured on The Ultimate Fighter 4.
His official UFC record is 1–2, having lost his debut to David Loiseau by TKO due to a spinning back kick at UFC 53 while defeating Gideon Ray by an armbar on The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale, giving him his first UFC victory. McCarthy was eliminated by Pete Sell from The Ultimate Fighter 4. However, as the fight was a demonstration bout by Nevada State Athletic Commission standards, it did not count toward McCarthy's official record. McCarthy's last fight was a loss against Michael Bisping by TKO at UFC 83. McCarthy repeatedly taunted Bisping during the bout. McCarthy, however, was subsequently unable to answer the bell for the second round due to injury after a flurry of knees from Bisping at the end of round one.
McCarthy announced his retirement from mixed martial arts on April 24, 2008.
Charles and his ex-wife Elisa were married in September 2005, right before the filming started on The Ultimate Fighter 4. The couple have two sons, Zachary and Gavin.
Since retiring from active competition, McCarthy has opened several successful mixed martial arts schools, American Top Team Boynton Beach. McCarthy coaches his students in competition, with Charles Rosa being notable for compiling a 15–2 amateur record and winning three amateur mixed martial arts titles and a title in Muay Thai.
In addition to his school, McCarthy also helped to found mixed martial arts website CageJunkies.com. CageJunkies is providing news and original opinion pieces and has counted UFC veterans Ben Stark, Heath Herring and Marcus Davis among its contributors.
In early 2012, McCarthy was also announced as a partner in Alchemist Management.
In 2014 Charles started Guardian Sports Group an UFC agency.
